Here's a look at some of the most interesting facts and figures heading into Bundesliga Matchday 31...
FC Bayern’s trip to Eintracht Braunschweig will be their 50th competitive game of the season, more than any other Bundesliga club. By contrast, it will only be Braunschweig's 32nd (one DFB Cup tie included). Bayern's and have scored against every team currently in the top flight - except Braunschweig.
FC Schalke 04 go into their game at VfB Stuttgart on a seven-game unbeaten run (five wins and two draws). The last time they went eight without losing was under Felix Magath in 2009/10, so a continuation at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena on Sunday would give head coach Jens Keller a new personal best.
Huub Stevens will move up a notch to joint-19th on the all-time chart for coaches' appearances when Stuttgart face his former club Schalke. The 60-year-old Dutch tactician paced the touchline 239 times in the Bundesliga in two spells with the Royal Blues as well as overseeing Hamburger SV 49 times, Hertha Berlin 48 and VfB six so far. That makes a grand total of 342 – one more and he will draw level with SC Freiburg legend Volker Finke.
1899 Hoffenheim are unbeaten in five games (three wins and two draws), matching their single-season record in the Bundesliga from 2008/09 (when they won five in a row before losing to Hertha Berlin). Sunday's 2-0 home victory over FC Augsburg also served up the most attempts on goal of any game this season - 49 in all. (26 for Hoffenheim, 23 for the visitors)
None of the previous 33 Bundesliga games between VfL Wolfsburg and Hamburger SV have ended goalless. In the year 2000, the sides memorably played out a 4-4 draw not once, but twice. Unless Saturday's game breaks with tradition, the encounter will see its 100th all-time goal, with 99 having been netted so far down the years.
Also on the 99 mark is Mirko Slomka, who will rack up 100 wins as a Bundesliga coach if Hamburg can get the better of the Wolves. He would thus become the 32nd head coach to reach a century of top-flight victories. The three most recent have come with Hamburg, prior to which Slomka bagged 54 wins at Hannover 96 and 42 with FC Schalke.
Hannover may only have edged a 2-1 win against Hamburg last weekend but it was a one-sided contest, as testified by a goal attempts count of 31-5 in the home side's favour. In fact, Hannover carved out more chances against HSV than in any other game since their return to the Bundesliga in 2002.
As well as setting Bayer 04 Leverkusen on the road to victory over Hertha Berlin with his 15th goal of the season, scored inside the opening minute, Stefan Kießling contested no fewer than 63 one-on-one situations over the course of the match – a division high for the season!
is one game away from his 200th Bundesliga appearance for 1. FC Nürnberg. Only Thomas Brunner (328) and goalkeeping duo Andreas Köpke (280) and Raphael Schäfer (246) have represented der Club more often in the top flight.
